This unit has been designed for students to study in a synchronous manner. While it is possible to complete this unit asynchronously this is not the recommended study option. If you decide to study in this way please make contact with the Unit Convenor regularly.
It is strongly recommended that students attend tutorials weekly.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
